Kutztown University Daily Brief

Happy Thanksgiving


Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger

Intensifying low pressure moves up the east coast but should exit the region by the midafternoon. We could see some rain in the early morning hours. Associated cold front to pass through during the late morning hours. Skies will gradually clear by the afternoon before some cold, dry air settles in for Thanksgiving Day. High temperature near 50. Winds northwest at 5-15 mph. Rainfall less than .1".


Nov. 27, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Faculty and staff are welcome to give blood at the next Miller-Keystone Blood Drive Monday, Nov. 27, from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. in 218 MSU. Pre-registrations keep your wait time to a minimum: Please share with your classes and student clubs as well. Blood levels are dangerously low - and tend to get even lower as the need goes up with holiday traveling and potential accidents.
